Resort

As the U.K.’s largest casino resort, Resorts World Birmingham caters to high rollers. But long before it opened in October 2015 in Birmingham, England, the project team was going all in to ensure the £150 million entertainment complex lived up to the sponsor’s bold vision.

By managing the project’s design and construction phases, English architecture and planning firm Benoy took on a massive scope to steer Malaysian casino company Genting Group through its first European project. The 12-story, 85,000-square-meter (914,932-square-foot) facility lives up to its name: Resorts World contains a four-star hotel and spa, conference center, 18 bars, 50 retail shops, an 11-screen movie theater, numerous restaurants—and a casino that accommodates up to 2,000 gamblers.
